    When will the dates be announced for the Flower & Garden show for next year? When will the prices be announced for the hotels for 2013?

    Hi Susan!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Disney has announced that the 2013 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival will take place from March 6th to May 19th next year.  If you have never been to Epcot during the festival before, you are in for a real treat.  The park is absolutely gorgeous.  The Flower Power Concert Series is another highlight of the festival.

    By calling Disney, you can reserve a hotel room up to 499 days in advance of your intended check out date.  However, you can not make an on-line reservation until the actual 2013 pricing has been released.  Historically, rates are released in mid to late summer for the upcoming year.  If you call now, what Disney does is charge you for a  single night's rate based on this year and then automatically adjusts your rate when the 2013 pricing comes out.

    Packages can only be booked once the 2013 rates are released.  However, you can easily convert a room only reservation to a package by simply calling.  Also, if any applicable discounts come out between now and then, you can call and try to have those applied to your reservation; there are usually limited numbers and conditions so not all discount codes will apply.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
